Grand Ticino (Cranberry & Hicks)
This is a
veterinarian's office that is said to be the location set of the
Grand Ticino. Obviously extensive set design work was done
but why not just use the real Grand Ticino restaurant which was
very close to the opening scenes location over by Washington
Square Park on
Thompson Street? (Since closed)
Sometimes I think the restaurant set was in Toronto... and I
don't just mean the interior either.
Castorini House (19 Cranberry St)
When this house
in Brooklyn Heights was on the market a couple years ago I wished I
had 5M to buy it and recreate the moonstruck house.
As you can see from the floorplan it would have taken a LOT of work
as it would need converting back into a single family home.
After being on the market for a couple of years it finally sold
for about 4M. Watch for scenes at the front door, where
the view to across the street goes from being there to being a
white opaqueness on the Toronto set.
